HYPERMETAL – Metal Additive Manufacturing

Hypermetal is sponsoring the 4th Doctoral Congress in Engineering

We are very proud to announce that we are sponsoring the 4th Doctoral Congress in Engineering. The event will be held on the 28th to 29th of June, 2021 fully online.

DCE21 is an event organized by FEUP with 13 symposiums about different areas of engineering. It is always an excellent opportunity for doctoral students, of the several areas of engineering, to discuss their on-going research with peers, professors and industry/companies. It is also great for potential industry partners to contact a broad audience of engineers which will soon be looking to move on to the industry.

Symposia:

Symposium on Biomedical Engineering
Symposium on Chemical and Biological Engineering
Symposium on Civil Engineering and Spatial Planning
Symposium on Electrical and Computer Engineering
Symposium on Engineering Physics
Symposium on Environmental Engineering
Symposium on Informatics Engineering
Symposium on Materials Science and Engineering
Symposium on Mechanical Engineering
Symposium in Mining and Geo-Resources Engineering
Symposium on Occupational Health and Safety
Symposium on Sustainable Energy Systems
Symposium in Transport Systems

Safety and Environment in Additive Manufacturing Facilities

At the beginning of the year we had the opportunity to participante in a training about Safety and Environment in additive manufacturing facilities organized by ISQ Academy.

This training was within the scope of SAM Project – Sectoral Skills Strategy for Additive Manufacturing. This a very interesting project that meets the current European need to develop an effective system to identify and aticipate the skills approriate to the demands of the various sectors in which AM technologies are applied.

What we learned allowed us to confirm and solidify the implementation of safe and environmental practices.

We want to thank ISQ Academy for this amazing opportunity. We hope to be together again very soon!

Summer 2020

The two sisters working side by side!
Maraging Steel for mould inserts in the Renishaw RenAM500E and Stainless Steel for automotive and design parts in the AM400

We continue working full time during the summer, send us your requests today!

Hybrid Inserts for Moulds

When a mould insert has a base with a simple geometry and straight cooling channels plus a complex top portion, it can be obtained by hybrid production: CNC machining + Metal AM

The complexity of the interior channels in the top makes it impossible to be produced by traditional technologies.
This way the additive portion of the part is done only where it really adds the value, resulting in an economical solution.

In Hypermetal we have the engineering capacity and all the equipment to provide the complete service, from the design of the channels, machining the bases, printing the top and finally hardening the parts by heat treatment.

New Equipment – RenAM500E

We’re very excited to announce the installation of our new Metal AM machine – the Renishaw RenAM500E!

Besides the direct increase in our production capacity, it also has a larger volume, 250x250x350mm, and a 500W laser that, together with the improved gas flow system, allows us to produce with thicker layers, optimising productivity, and use continuous laser beam parameters, ensuring consistent high-quality processing.

New Services – CNC Machining

To optimize the usage of our equipments, we now provide CNC Machining and Heat Treatment services.

CNC Machining

– 3 axis
– Up to 405x305x254mm

In addition to machining additive productions as post-process, we now also provide the service of producing parts by machining, series or prototyping.

New Services – Heat Treatments

To optimize the usage of our post-processing equipments, we now provide CNC Machining and Heat Treatment services.

Heat Treatments

– Tmax 1280ºC
– Chamber: 350x500x250mm

We perform heat treatments to obtain the specified levels of hardness and mechanical resistance.
We do annealing and tempering, with the possibility of controlling the atmosphere of the oven to prevent oxidation of the parts.

We also have the service of aesthetic oxidation. This procedure gives color to the steel through a thermal oxidation process. The possible colors are the tempering colors of steel, allowing to provide a totally different aspect to your parts.
This process creates a small and thin layer of oxide in steel, less than one micron, and does not cause any significant difference in the dimensional tolerances of the product.
